The fit-for-purpose sharing of flood risk information with communities is paramount to improving flood resilience. It is recognised that at-risk individuals and communities have a major role to play in managing their flood risk. The sharing of flood risk information is thus an important pathway to create better flood resilient communities
This webinar will presents the innovative and pioneering cloud based flood report generation portal developed for Greater Shepparton City Council and the Goulburn Broken CMA that securely connects to official flood information data directly at source in real time – known as the ‘Digital Delta’ method. With this approach, the public can view flood maps and download official property specific flood information reports on the fly.
The portal significantly reduces the time and cost burden on the Council and CMA staff while simultaneously improving the accessibility to the public. It can be quickly, easily and cheaply expanded to other organisations.
This FREE webinar will provide an implementation overview of the HydroNET platform and how it can be used for real-time water resource operation, management and planning.
